My Menu for this week...

Lunch

Mac and Cheese
Chicken nuggets
Fish Sticks
Chicken soup
sandwiches


Dinner

Roast beef w/potatoes, carrots, onions and salad
Grilled Chicken w/rice, grilled asparagus, and salad
Taco Stuff
Ham and Bean soup w/french bread and salad
Baked potato bar w/shrimp scampi and salad


Salad is the theme of the week.lol I'm going to try to incorporate more veggies into our diets by adding a salad to each meal. I'm also going to continue adding a smoothie day at least 2x this week.

I really haven't done much this weekend. I've just been trying to feel better from this sinus infection and the antibiotics are taking their time in healing me.lol The kids had their game yesterday and I was told that it was a real nail-biter. They lost in double overtime but the kids said it was probably the best game they've even played in. I love that even though they lost, they still came home excited and happy about the game. I think the Y has really helped all the kids to just play and enjoy instead of being upset or worried about who's winning. Good job, Y!

I'll have to give my goals for this week some thought. I'm hoping I'll feel better soon and then I'll be ready to do alot more than I can right now. Well, I guess I know what my main goal will be...getting better so that I can take better care of my family.lol As is, for now, I'll be happy if I can get in my house-keeping and a game day this next week. I also want to accomplish more preschool with the littles this week. I've got some things printed out, so I'll just use those until I'm feeling better, then I'll go out and copy some more.

I hope everyone has a blessed week!

I still love the idea of your menus even though I've yet to impliment one for myself! One of these weeks....

very cute aboutt he older kids enjoying Evie's butter project. I am finding that my big kids enjoy somethings which I do with Colin and Tristan now. Things I had done with them at younger ages but they forgot or were too little to do much of it.

Congrats to your kids on the great game.

argh that you're antiboiotics are slow to kick in sending get well wishes your way.

I also enjoy your menus. I have talked forever about doing that, but it never seems to happen.

Hope you feel better quick.

I love game days! We don't get them very much but we do get game nights. Tonight the temps dropped to the mid forties - so the kids said, "Mom, let's make a fire, make hot chocolate and play CLUE." and that is exactly what we did!

Jodi,

My kids love the menu! They get to help pick what's on it and then they know that mom isn't going to be throwing something together at the very last minute which usually isn't that great.lol

The butter project made me realize that the kids have forgotten quite a bit of what we did when they were little. I've decided to add in some things for this week to see if they would enjoy it. We'll see. I'm going to try a lapbook that I found for free on Thanksgiving.

I was so proud that they came in so excited and after describing the game to me, in detail, then told me they lost.lol I thought they won from all their excitement.lol

Thanks for the well-wishes. I'm feeling a bit better today and I think that I may actually survive this.lol

De'Etta,

Thanks for the prayers! I think survival is a good goal. I think that's where I've been for a few weeks now.lol Take it easy and sleep when you can.

Blessings,

Lisa

Debbie,

I'm glad that so many like my menus! For me, it makes sure that we have variety and that the kids get to see their favorites regularly. It's a good balance for us.

Emily,

We used to have game nights but with two littles, soon to be three, we just couldn't seem to stay awake long enough to play anymore.lol That's when I decided to move it to the day time. We still need that time together but just need to move it to a time when I don't feel like I'll pass out if I stay upright.lol
